An airplane is traveling at a speed of 600 mph with a bearing of N35oW at a fixed altitude and no wind. As the plane crosses the Mississippi river, it encounters a wind blowing with a velocity of 60 mph in the direction of N40oE. What is the resultant speed and direction of the plane?

Joey is playing tug of war with his two best friends. He is pulling with a force of 60N at 210o.Simon exerts a force of 30N at 45o. Austin exerts a force as well. To achieve equilibrium and thus, not lose the game, what is the force Austin must exert and at what angle?

A mover exerts a force of 35 pounds parallel to the ramp on a crate as it is pushed up the ramp that is 40 feet long and inclined at an angle of 13oabove the horizontal. Find the work done on the crate.

Note: The force is in the same direction of the movement. Therefore, all the force is moving the crate.
